Hi There, We currently have 2 hens - 1 x 3 year old New Hampshire Red & 1 x 9mth old Isa Brown. We have just been given a Silkie chicken (about 3 months old) unexpectedly this evening. It had been left for us as a gift at my parent's house. At the moment, the Silkie is in a box with shavings on the bottom of it, in our dining room, with some food & water. We are nervous about putting it into the outdoor coop with the other 2 hens, as we think it might be pecked to death. Is this likely to happen?? (i.e. For it to be killed by the other 2?) We are currently looking to buy another Silkie to keep this one's company & think that it's probably better to house the Silkies separately from the existing 2 hens.. though if this can be avoided, it would be good as chicken houses are not exactly cheap. Please give me some advice! Many thanks!!
